Hercufleas

Then she discovers Hercufleas who, more than anything, would love an adventure. Trouble is, Hercufleas is tiny, but what he lacks in brute strength he makes up for with brains, courage and determination, all excellent qualities in a hero.

This is an unusual and imaginative fairy tale adventure. A fast paced and exciting story, scattered with wonderful pencil drawings, it is also a reminder that the little things in life can be very significant. This will delight young readers with its originality and fun!
